Limited Submission Announcement

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) invites applications for Alzheimer's Disease Core Centers (ADCCs) (P30) to support and conduct research on Alzheimer's disease (AD), to serve as shared research resources that will facilitate research in AD and related disorders, distinguish them from the processes of normal brain aging and mild cognitive impairment (MCI), provide a platform for training, develop novel techniques and methodologies, and translate these research findings into better diagnostic, prevention and treatment strategies. The central focus may be translational research, clinical – pathological research, basic research or a combination. Applicants are strongly encouraged to include efforts to address the needs of, and research on, ethnically and racially diverse people as well as other underserved populations.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, September 10, 2010. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should include brief descriptions of 1) plans for each of the five required cores (administrative core, clinical core, data management and statistics core, neuropathology core, and education and information core), 2) plans to support one to three pilot studies for basic or clinical biomedical, epidemiological, caregiving, educational or behavioral research, and 3) names of three MU personnel who could serve as internal reviewers for letters of intent under this program.


New applications should request a project period of five years and a budget for direct costs of up to $850,000 per year. Renewal applications may request direct costs for all cores (both required and optional), and the other listed functions, i.e., satellites and pilot grants at a level not exceeding the combined direct costs of all funded activities awarded during the final year of the present funding period plus a 3% increase, or $850,000 per year, whichever is larger.
